At the Montreux CE Expo 2015, Soundrevolution had a big room, about 70 square meter, and Blumenhofer presented the Genuin FS 2 combined with The Tune from Einstein.
During the setup of the room we made a lot of testing, to be sure to setup the best possible system with the tools we had handy. There were also some attempt with other cabling, and these attempts were not leading to the desired result: it was a further confirmation of the quality of our products. In the end the whole cabling and the whole power cleaning was based on Cammino. With our Power Harmonizer we got the system playing at its best.
The analogue music reproduction was leading, but even our CD partners found a good solution for their needs. The sources have been:
- Turntable Thales TTT-Compact including the famous Thales Tonarm (I think it is a good idea to test it further)
- CD Transport from Audio Tonale
At fist I was surprised by the quantity of strange products at the show: refrigerators, ovens, television sets, even pots and hair blowers.
At first I was not really understanding what was happening: very little public at the show. Then I understood that: it was a dealer show.
Each person entering the room was in fact dealer of some kind of electronic components or home appliances. GREAT!!
We had the time to spend and to discuss with each person coming to our room. I think I've seldom enjoyed such a relaxed and rich fair, seldom in such a beautiful place with such a rich environment (even outside the show area).
If You are curious? It was refreshing: Here to our gallery.
We were there, and we had fun!!
We have been able to wire the whole system with our cables... except for one digital and one power cable from WireWorld. It was the first time as well that we used the new loudspeaker cable, the 14.4 reference with Smart Wiring. Was great!! What incredible possibilities unfold, if there is the time to play and fiddle a little bit around, what enormous chance to push the system further.
What shall I write, the best sign of success is seeing people staying in the room long time and... having something good to remember.

This was our first participation to the Zürich High End 2013 and I must say it was a really positive surprise. Blumenhofer is in Switzerland an already well known and estimated brand and the public knew what they were looking for. Really enjoyable. Sound Revolution, our distributor for Switzerland has been able to make a very astonishing setup in that room.
The system was composed by:
- Gato Audio CD Player from Denmark
- Hegel Music System DAC with integrated Preamplifier from Norway
- Sauermann Audio Power Amplifier from Germany
- and of course Blumenhofer's Genuin FS 2
Ours was cabling and power harmonization, but do I need to stress it?
I must say, it made music and the public liked it really a lot, the comments of the people going out of the room were really cheering and pleased me and the team exposing in Zürich.
Then the spectacular atmosphere created by the artistic tapestry and the very pleasant environment completed the charm. It was a long work, but it was worth it.
A big thank You to André and Gerd for making this possible.
